Congratulations and we have a DT call

Congratulations! 2012
Hello to all my wonderful followers! We had a fantastic week end here in Wisconsin beautiful sun shine and nice warm to a little too warm for me but the garden is all planted but still have some flowers I want to change and add. I put my Hummingbird feeder out yesterday and had some little visitor come by, I was so excited. I feed my birds all year around, I love seeing them come around. I wish I could keep the black bird away but I guess they have to eat also. Can you believe May is almost over. I sure hope things start slowing down.
We had a fantastic turn out for our last challenge so I want to thank everyone that join us. Now it is time for Challenge #11 at Cards For Men the theme can be anything but you need to have the word “CONGRATULATIONS” somewhere on your card.  The challenge ends June 3, 2012. So you have a lot of time.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Meljen and the prize is 4 digi’s.

Meljen's Designs is a lovely stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical rubber and digital images inspired by her kids and family. Meljen's Designs has new releases along with a new challenge every Thursday, freebies every Monday and a Guest Designer each month at the Meljen's Designs Blog.

My sentiment is from The Angel Company.
Congratulation! 2012 side

The spellbinder I used to cut out my image is called FLORAL OVAL, I do have to say I just love this set. McGill’s punch 3inch Word Tag to cut out the sentiment and is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and sponged a round the edges.  Paper is from DCWV the stack is called Sweet Premium. Added some brown pearls and ribbon. These are the copic markers I used to color my image. I did use some Spica colors sky blue, baby blue, yellow, orange and lipstick.
Congratulations! markers

Congratulations! close up

I just love that rich brown look. If you are interested in joining us for the Design Team we are looking for 4 new members and all you have to do is enter a card and put your name and put DT just after your name for example PATRICIA DT, you only need to do 2 cards a month and it is a great way of getting cards done if you have a lot of guys in your life. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Hi Pat -

Could you send WI sunshine to PA? Nothing but rain here.

Love this card! Your coloring is fabulous as always! I just made a bunch of male b-day cards, sadly none of them say "Congrats". But I will still check it out.

Have a great holiday weekend!
